    Lenovo ideapad z370 no wireless

    Hi,

    I got a problem with my Lenovo thinkpad. When I first installed Oneiric Ocelot - 11.10, I had no problem with my Wireless. I re-installed the same system a few days ago and since then I can't turn on my Wireless. The computer doesn't even find it. I've already installed STA (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1604868). It also seems to work properly in additional drivers. When I write "sudo rfkill list" I get the message:

    0: ideapad_wlan: Wireless LAN
    Soft blocked: no
    Hard blocked: no
    1: ideapad_bluetooth: Bluetooth
    Soft blocked: no
    Hard blocked: no
    2: brcmwl-0: Wireless LAN
    Soft blocked: no
    Hard blocked: yes

    Can someone please help me? Thank you!

    Hi, it says it is hard blocked which ususally means the actual switch is off on the computer try turning it on with the switch or a key press like f12 or fn f12, you may have to look at your documentation to see what turns it on.

    Also please post:
    Code:
    cat /etc/lsb-release; uname -a
    lspci -nnk | grep -iA2 net
    iwconfig
    lsmod
    Thanks

    Hi.

    I already tried to the two different 2 buttons for wireless but nothing changes.... I wrote your command and here's the answer:
